  • All teams registering in a Provincial Championship category that leads to a Western Canadian or Canadian Championship require a minimum of one (1) Coach to be fully certified Competition Introduction (All three weekends) and the Making Ethical Decisions (MED) online exam, or have a complete Softball Level II Coaching Certificate (Technical + Practical + Introduction to Competition Part A & B), and must be present at the Provincial Championship and on the bench. Exception: Master teams require one coach who has completed the Community Softball Clinic or Level 1 N.C.C.P. Coaching Certificate (Technical + Practical + Introduction to Competition Part A).

  • All Coaches must take the Respect in Sport (RiS) online program prior to stepping on the diamond. Information is available on our website under the coaching tab. The program takes about 3 hours to complete and is free of charge.
